Since her James Beard Award-winning first book, Sunday Suppers at Lucques, Suzanne Goin and her Los Angeles empire of restaurants ...have blossomed and she has been lauded as one of the best chefs in the country. Now, she is bringing us the recipes from her sophomore restaurant, A.O.C., turning the small-plate, shared-style dishes that she made so famous into main courses for the home chef. Among her many recipes, you can expect her addictive Bacon-Wrapped Dates with Parmesan; Duck Sausage with Candied Kumquats; Dandelion and Roasted Carrot Salad with Black Olives and Ricotta Salata; California Sea Bass with Tomato Rice, Fried Egg, and Sopressata; Lamb Meatballs with Spiced Tomato Sauce, Mint, and Feta; Crème Fraîche Cake with Santa Rosa Plums and Pistachios in Olive Oil; and S Mores with Caramel Popcorn and Chocolate Sorbet. But The A.O.C. Cookbook is much more than just a collection of recipes. Because Goin is a born teacher with a gift for pairing seasonal flavors, this book is full of wonderful, eye-opening information about the ingredients that she holds dear. She takes the time to talk you through each one of her culinary decisions, explaining her palate and how she gets the deeply developed flavor profiles, which make even the simplest dishes sing. More than anything, Goin wants you to understand her techniques so you enjoy yourself in the kitchen and have no problem achieving restaurant-quality results right at home. And because wine and cheese are at the heart of A.O.C., there are two exciting additions. Caroline Styne, Goin s business partner and the wine director for her restaurants, presents a specific wine pairing for each dish. Styne explains why each varietal works well with the ingredients and which flavors she s trying to highlight, and she gives you room to experiment as well showing how to shape the wine to your own palate. Whether you re just grabbing a glass to go with dinner or planning an entire menu, her expert notes are a real education in wine. At the back of the book, you ll find Goin s amazing glossary of cheeses all featured at A.O.C. along with the notes that are given to the waitstaff, explaining the sources, flavor profiles, and pairings. With more than 125 full-color photographs, The A.O.C.

That plus a full-time job should qualify me as some kind of expert in fast, fresh family dinners! Here in Joy of Kosher I share more than 100 of my absolute best recipes and give each a creative twist: Dress It Up add some bling for your party table or Dress It Down and lure your picky eaters to meals they ll beg for again and again. That s more than 200 recipes! A few of my faves: Crystal Clear Chicken Soup with Julienned Vegetables and Angel Hair (Dress It Down: Chicken Noodle Alphabet Soup) Garlic Honey Brisket (Dress It Down: Honey Brisket Pita Pockets) Miso-Glazed Salmon (Dress It Up: Avocado-Stuffed Miso-Glazed Salmon) Butternut Squash Mac n Cheese (Dress It Down: Mac n Cheese Muffin Cups) Gooey Chocolate Cherry Cake (Dress It Up: Red Wine Chocolate Cherry Heart Cake) And talk about challah!

When Adventures on the Wine Route was first published, Victor Hazan said, ?In Kermit Lynch s small, true, delightful book there is... more understanding about what wine really is than in everything else I have read.? A quarter century later, this remarkable journey of wine, travel, and taste remains an essential volume for wine lovers. In 2007, Eric Asimov, in The New York Times, called it ?one of the finest American books on wine,? and in 2012, The Wall Street Journal pro-claimed that it ?may be the best book on the wine business.? In celebration of its twenty-fifth anniversary, Adventures on the Wine Route has been thoroughly redesigned and updated with an epilogue and a list of the great wine connoisseur s twenty-five most memorable bottles. In this singular tour along the French wine route, Lynch ventures forth to find the very essence of the wine world. In doing so, he never shies away from the attitudes, opinions, and beliefs that have made him one of our most respected and outspoken authorities on wine. Yet his guiding philosophy is exquisitely simple. As he writes in the introduction, ?Wine is, above all, about pleasure. Those who make it ponderous make it dull . . . If you keep an open mind and take each wine on its own terms, there is a world of magic to discover.? Adventures on the Wine Route is the ultimate quest for this magic via France s most distinguished vineyards and wine cellars. Lynch draws vivid portraits of vintners from inebriated négociants to a man who oversees a vineyard that has been in his family for five hundred years and memorably evokes the countryside at every turn. ?The French,? Lynch writes, ?with their aristocratic heritage, their experience and tradition, approach wine from another point of view . . . and one cannot appreciate French wine with any depth of understanding without knowing how the French themselves look at their wines, by going to the source, descending into their cold, humid cellars, tasting with them, and listening to the language they employ to describe their wines.? Here, Kermit Lynch assures a whole new generation of readers as well as his loyal fans that discussions about wine need not focus so stringently on ?the pH, the oak, the body, the finish,? but rather on the ?gaiety? of the way ?the tart fruit perfume[s] the palate and the brain.? Winner of the 1988 Clicquot Wine Book of the Year Award. "A riveting account of one man s pursuit of authenticity as well as excellence in wine." -- The Wine Advocate read more

In the tradition of Michael Pollan s The Omnivore s Dilemma, Susan Orlean s The Orchid Thief, and Mark Kurlansky s Cod a renowned ...culinary adventurer goes into the woods with the iconoclasts and outlaws who seek the world s most coveted ingredient . . . and one of nature s last truly wild foods: the uncultivated, uncontrollable mushroom. Within the dark corners of America s forests grow culinary treasures. Chefs pay top dollar to showcase these elusive and beguiling ingredients on their menus. Whether dressing up a filet mignon with smoky morels or shaving luxurious white truffles over pasta, the most elegant restaurants across the country now feature an abundance of wild mushrooms. The mushroom hunters, by contrast, are a rough lot. They live in the wilderness and move with the seasons. Motivated by Gold Rush desires, they haul improbable quantities of fungi from the woods for cash. Langdon Cook embeds himself in this shadowy subculture, reporting from both rural fringes and big-city eateries with the flair of a novelist, uncovering along the way what might be the last gasp of frontier-style capitalism. Meet Doug, an ex-logger and crabber now an itinerant mushroom picker trying to pay his bills and stay out of trouble; and Jeremy, a former cook turned wild food entrepreneur, crisscrossing the continent to build a business amid cutthroat competition; their friend Matt, an up-and-coming chef whose kitchen alchemy is turning heads; and the woman who inspires them all. Rich with the science and lore of edible fungi from seductive chanterelles to exotic porcini The Mushroom Hunters is equal parts gonzo travelogue and culinary history lesson, a rollicking, character-driven tour through a world that is by turns secretive, dangerous, and tragically American. Praise for The Mushroom Hunters ?A rollicking narrative . . . Cook [delivers] vivid and cinematic scenes on every page.? The Wall Street Journal ?The Mushroom Hunters lends fresh, sharp illumination to a little-known but vigorously contested patch of gastronomic turf. . . . [It s an] entertaining ramble through the woods with a group of ragtag characters.? The Washington Post ?Like Susan Orlean in The Orchid Thief, Seattle author [Langdon] Cook shines a light on a shady subculture operating at the seam between wilderness and commerce. Like author Michael Pollan, he knows that every bite of food these days has a complex, often unsavory backstory. Like the late Hunter Thompson, he not only goes along for the ride with the shifty characters he s writing about, but drives the getaway car. After reading The Mushroom Hunters, you ll never look at a portobello the same way. . . . [A] beguiling, surprising book.? The Seattle Times ?Not simply about mushrooms, this book examines human behavior, economics, food, society, and nature. In the end, readers will have learned a great deal about U.S. economic and social structures all while being entertained and enlightened by stories of gastronomy and mushrooms. Highly recommended.? Library Journal ?Intrepid and inspired.? Publishers Weekly ?Uncultivated mushrooms are one of our last truly wild foods; it often takes truly wild and rough mushroom hunters to bring them to our table. Cook travels and hunts with them in a riveting, crazy undertaking, told in often-poetic prose.? Shelf Awareness read more

The indispensable cookbook for genuine Italian sauces and the traditional pasta shapes that go with them. Pasta is so universally ...popular in the United States that it can justifiably be called an American food. This book makes the case for keeping it Italian with recipes for sauces and soups as cooked in Italian homes today. There are authentic versions of such favorites as carbonara, bolognese, marinara, and Alfredo, as well as plenty of unusual but no less traditional sauces, based on roasts, ribs, rabbit, clams, eggplant, arugula, and mushrooms, to name but a few. Anyone who cooks or eats pasta needs this book. The straightforward recipes are easy enough for the inexperienced, but even professional chefs will grasp the elegance of their simplicity. Cooking pasta the Italian way means: Keep your eye on the pot, not the clock. Respect tradition, but don t be a slave to it. Choose a compatible pasta shape for your sauce or soup, but remember they aren t matched by computer. (And that angel hair goes with broth, not sauce.) Use the best ingredients you can find and you can find plenty on the Internet. Resist the urge to embellish, add, or substitute. But minor variations usually enhance a dish. How much salt? Don t ask, taste! Serving and eating pasta the Italian way means: Use a spoon for soup, not for twirling spaghetti. Learn to twirl; never cut. Never add too much cheese, and often add none at all. Toss the cheese and pasta before adding the sauce. Warm the dishes.Serve pasta alone. The salad comes after. To be perfectly proper, use a plate, not a bowl. The authors are reluctant to compromise because they know how good well-made pasta can be. But they keep their sense of humor and are sympathetic to all well-intentioned readers.

NATIONAL BESTSELLER Winner of the IACP Julia Child First Book Award * Named one of Cooking Light magazine s Top 100 Cookbooks of t...he Last 25 Years The long-awaited cookbook by Deb Perelman of Smitten Kitchen home cook, photographer, and celebrated food blogger. Deb Perelman loves to cook. She isn t a chef or a restaurant owner she s never even waitressed. Cooking in her tiny Manhattan kitchen was, at least at first, for special occasions and, too often, an unnecessarily daunting venture. Deb found herself overwhelmed by the number of recipes available to her. Have you ever searched for the perfect birthday cake on Google? You ll get more than three million results. Where do you start? What if you pick a recipe that s downright bad? So Deb founded her award-winning blog, Smitten Kitchen, on the premise that cooking should be a pleasure, and that the results of your labor can and should be delicious . . . every time. Deb is a firm believer that there are no bad cooks, just bad recipes. She has dedicated herself to creating and finding the best of the best and adapting the recipes for the everyday cook. And now, with the same warmth, candor, and can-do spirit her blog is known for, Deb presents her first cookbook: more than 100 recipes almost entirely new, plus a few favorites from the site all gorgeously illustrated with hundreds of her beautiful color photographs. The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook is all about approachable, uncompromised home cooking. Here you ll find better uses for your favorite vegetables: asparagus blanketing a pizza; ratatouille dressing up a sandwich; cauliflower masquerading as pesto. These are recipes you ll bookmark and use so often they become your own, recipes you ll slip to a friend who wants to impress her new in-laws, and recipes with simple ingredients that yield amazing results in a minimum amount of time. Deb tells you her favorite summer cocktail; how to lose your fear of cooking for a crowd; and the essential items you need for your own kitchen. From salads and slaws that make perfect side dishes (or a full meal) to savory tarts and galettes; from Mushroom Bourguignon to Chocolate Hazelnut Crepe Cake, Deb knows just the thing for a Tuesday night, or your most special occasion.

New York Times Bestseller, With a New Afterword ?Schlosser has a flair for dazzling scene-setting and an arsenal of startling fact...s . . . Fast Food Nation points the way but, to resurrect an old fast food slogan, the choice is yours.? Los Angeles Times In 2001, Fast Food Nation was published to critical acclaim and became an international bestseller. Eric Schlosser s exposé revealed how the fast food industry has altered the landscape of America, widened the gap between rich and poor, fueled an epidemic of obesity, and transformed food production throughout the world. The book changed the way millions of people think about what they eat and helped to launch today s food movement. In a new afterword for this edition, Schlosser discusses the growing interest in local and organic food, the continued exploitation of poor workers by the food industry, and the need to ensure that every American has access to good, healthy, affordable food. Fast Food Nation is as relevant today as it was a decade ago. The book inspires readers to look beneath the surface of our food system, consider its impact on society and, most of all, think for themselves. ?As disturbing as it is irresistible . . . Exhaustively researched, frighteningly convincing . . . channeling the spirits of Upton Sinclair and Rachel Carson.? San Francisco Chronicle ?Schlosser shows how the fast food industry conquered both appetite and landscape.?

Since prehistory, humans have braved sharp knives, fire, and grindstones to transform raw ingredients into something delicious or ...at least edible. Tools shape what we eat, but they have also transformed how we consume, and how we think about, our food. In Consider the Fork, award-winning food writer Bee Wilson provides a wonderful and witty tour of the evolution of cooking around the world, revealing the hidden history of everyday objects we often take for granted. Technology in the kitchen does not just mean the Pacojets and sous-vide of the modernist kitchen, but also the humbler tools of everyday cooking and eating: a wooden spoon and a skillet, chopsticks and forks. Blending history, science, and anthropology, Wilson reveals how our culinary tools and tricks came to be, and how their influence has shaped modern food culture. The story of how we have tamed fire and ice and wielded whisks, spoons, and graters, all for the sake of putting food in our mouths, Consider the Fork is truly a book to savor.
